    Here you'll find a growing list of how to guides on using the forum.


    I will be adding to these as often as possible. Next ones will be 'uploading to the Resource section', 'GuiderPlus subscription' and 'using the Gallery'.

    If you'd like to know how to use anything on the forum please post below and I'll look at added a guide or answer your questions.

    if you know the username of the person you are sending a pm to when you sign in to the site at the top it will say inbox click on this and it will say start a conversation do this and then click send and it will go to the person you want the badges off hope this makes sense

    How do you edit a thread? Eg to correct a mistype or even delete one added by accident?

    I'm not sure that you can delete, but you can PM a mod or report a post and a mod will delete it.
    To edit there is an edit icon at the bottom of a post ( I think everyone can see that - I know I can but it may be Mod powers) it's next to the time and date bit...

    Hi. Yes that's correct.. you can edit posts but threads can only be deleted or changed by mods.

    As Quack has suggested Reporting the thread/post will allow you to flag it up and add a comment saying what's wrong. Don't worry about Reporting posts as it's nothing more than sending a note to the mods.

    This should now be fixed. It was a strange permissions thing going on!
